it showed me the follow text when i wanted to create a issue.

<b><font size="2" color="red">Project JIRA</font></b>

This widget could not be displayed.

Hi Gonzalo, at least in Cloud, instead of html you should use wiki markup, for example {color:red}*Project JIRA*{color}.

But in my case, I see the description in red color only in the Custom fields screen, when the field is in the create issue screen, is in black sad

HTML is a security risk and is gradually being removed from almost all areas where people used to use it too.  That's why it's not working, it's not supportable, so Atlassian don't use it.
